Private tuition is an excellent way to supplement in-school learning, and the industry has recently seen accelerated growth due to the pandemic. A report from 2019 shows that over a quarter of secondary school students have previously received private tuition.
With so many lessons taking place outside of the classroom, let’s take a look at some of the benefits of hiring a tutor:
It encourages students to learn outside of school and be more inquisitive of the world around them.
Students can learn at their own pace. One-to-one sessions allow students to repeat topics and questions as much as necessary without feeling behind, or grant the ability to skip over concepts they have mastered without waiting for the rest of the class to catch up.
Everybody’s learning style is slightly different and a good tutor will tailor lessons to suit each student.
Tuition eases transitions throughout school, such as the jump from primary to secondary school, and provides reassurance for exams like the 11+ test and GCSEs
We’ve all seen a shift to a virtual world in the past few years, and education is no different with school classes being held online. Private tutors have also had to move lessons to online learning rather than in person tuition. Though some parents may be hesitant to begin online tutoring, there are some additional benefits of booking online:
Flexibility and convenience are major factors when considering how tuition can fit into a busy family schedule. There’s no travel time, sessions can be weekly, fortnightly, or as and when needed.
The modern world revolves heavily around technology, and online tuition can give students more confidence in using different programmes and understanding new communication methods.
With both tutor and student staying in their own homes, Covid safety is at a maximum without the use of masks, screens and hand sanitiser.
